I could be mistaken, have been before, but on todays show I thought I heard you speak of Hank Paulson making 5 billion last year. Should I have heard John Paulson. Just trying to be clear, as it was John Paulson (no relation) that made a record income for a hedge fund. My personal take is that anyone that makes that much in one year, eiither did something illegal, knew it wasn't ethical and just doesn't care how many people he puts in the gutter. No individual is WORTH 5 billion a year. I have absolutely nothing against anyone earning billions, as long as he/she creates jobs and benefits in the process.

Whose Base is Bigger - Democrats or Republicans?
